Things that piss me off

There is a special place in hell for…

January 16, 2009
traffic on I-94 in Minneapolis

People who refuse to use their blinkers. I can’t read your fucking mind so please use the turn signals that came standard on your vehicle.

People who ride up on my ass while driving on black ice. I don’t know why these people do this but they are usually talking on their cell phone at the time. If I knew they had insurance I would slam on my brakes but I can’t tell by the make of their vehicle or phone if they have it.

Pedestrians who think they own the road. Yeah, I realize the law is in your favor but when it’s really icy out do you think its a good idea to dash out into the street? I have a big ass truck that CAN NOT stop on a dime, especially on ice. The law might favor you but how much good does that do you when you are dead?

Old people own the road during regular business hours. I get that. Do us all a favor and please stay off the road after 5pm. Don’t you have to go to bed by then?

    So you’re saying…this blinker thing…it annoys you?

    Here’s my “favorite”: You’re on the highway, the speed limit is 65. The guy in front of you is going about 55. So, you decide to pass. He then speeds up to over 80 because — because — BECAUSE WHAT?? Because this fool views being passed as a slap to his overly developed sense of driving manhood.

    I detest these people. I loathe them.

    When I lived in New York City, it was easy to see why so many drivers viewed driving as sport. Rather, as a video game. The game: Asteroids.

    I thought of another just a bit ago:

    If you can’t see over the dashboard you shouldn’t be driving, I don’t let my five year old drive…just sayin’

    ha! I have a very similar post in my queue… I keep putting it back a bit as more “timely” stuff takes precedence… I’ll get around to it soon enough, though. It’s not as if these morons will suddenly stop being morons.

    Just found your blog thru I Do Things. Glad to hear she is finding you a date too.

    Um, it absolutely makes me insane, now that I am living in a real city, when people run thru traffic to cross a street. In Sydney these people are nuts. It’s like driving an obstacle course to avoid hitting them!

    Don’t get me started on the old people thing! You know they aren’t going anywhere when 1) They’ve got their driving “cap” on–you know the old guys and their caps and 2) they’ve got their cap on AND the dog in the car. Arrrgghhh!

    ‘ere you – leave out the ageism please – this 57-year old petrolhead could get mad with ya.

    Seriously, don’t you have laws against a phone and driving – we do, although it doesn’t stop some people. The main offenders are the species commonly known as ‘white van man’ – you know the type. Full of macho and a greasy English breakfast, he’ll make some sexist comment if you’re alongside him at the traffic lights and hates being overtaken by a girly. He’s on the phone to his girlfriend, mistress or making an excuse to his boss, why he’s already an hour behind schedule.
    Even so, beware of male drivers wearing ANY kind of hat other than a baseball cap. Major road hazard
